Notes

The National Library of Scotland contains the papers of Dr Andrew Buchanan Macdonald, Founder and Medical Superintendent of the Itu Leper Colony, Nigeria. They include the typescripts of three manuscripts: "This is my life" of "A Doctor in Nigeria" (which was published as In This Name: the Story of a Doctor in Nigeria, London: Oldbourne P, 1964), "Founding of a Leper Colony", and "Nigeria Leprosy Services Recommendations". There are three radio scripts relating to publication of his manuscript with Oldbourne Press and also miscellaneous correspondence from Itu, Nigeria, 1927-37.

In addition, the library holds a minute book of the Roxburgh Deira Leper Auxiliary 1910-18, whose object was to assist the Mission to Lepers.
